and november 6th. earlier this month several candidates faced off in a debate for california's 26th district seat left open by the retirement of republican rules committee chair david dreier. this hour and a half long debate between julia brownley and republican tony strickland took place at california lutheran university in thousand oaks. [applause] >> moderator: okay, here we go. um, we have as dr. kimble had mentioned, we have c-span, we also have kdtv, kclu and ventura county star all live streaming, so the debate starts at 7:15. so let me quickly go through the ground rules. we flipped a coin to determine the order in which there would be opening and closing remarks and who would start and who would finish. in the opening two minutes from each candidate, it would open with assemblywoman brownley, and then that would close with senator strickland, and can that same -- and that same, then it would be reversed in the closing. it would be senator strickland and then assemblywoman brownley. once we go through the two-minute opening, then a panel, tim hearth and henry durbroff and i will pres
progress in houston, atlanta, charlotte, california, north texas and right here in metropolitan washington, d.c. and more regions will follow. we've learned lessons from the past regarding our larger acquisition programs and we've developed best practices moving forward with elevated and strengthened our nextgen organization, and we've created a new program management organization specifically focused on implementing major technology programs. such as aram which is our modernization program. this will strengthen and improve the coordination among the nextgen initiatives assuring them from the drawing board to live operation. this new approach as well as our improved working relationship with the union is already showing results. aram is already operating and nine en route centers of the country. we plan to use it at a total of 20 centers. and now five centers are using it as the primary technology to direct air traffic. this sets the stage for taking advantage of more capabilities throughout the air traffic control system. this is truly an exciting time in aviation history. nextgen is fund
industry. so part of the reason i went to california is to understand what drives innovation and investment in this industry, but also to hear from them about ways that washington could be more engaged to make sure that our decisions, you know, both reflect the nature of the business and help them do what they do even better. >> host: final question, eliza krigman. >> let's talk about the politics at the fcc. do you feel any pressure to be more conservative than commissioner mcdowell, and do you consult with one another about a team approach on the issues? >> guest: i don't feel any pressure -- [laughter] one way or the other. i can tell you we've never had any conversation like that, nor have i had a similar conversation about small p politics with any of my colleagues. the vast majority of our work is done on a bipartisan consensus basis, and when we do have concerns, these are issues where reasonable people can disagree, and we approach, you know, the disagreement in that way. and so i've been very fortunate to have four colleagues who are blessed with both deep understanding of communic
. in states like texas and california, that proportion's even greater. in texas 48% of the entire population under 18 is latino. in california 51% of the entire population under 18 is latino which explains why our electorate is growing as young people turn 18 years of age and enter the electorate. oops. like to talk a little bit now about the impact latinos will have on congressional races. first, there are two latinos running for the united states. in arizona, former surgeon general richard carmona is facing congressman jeff flake to succeed senator jon kyl. the former surgeon general actually has, i think, pretty good opportunities to be successful on november 6th. it's a race that's being watched nationally and may increase the number of latinos in the united states senate. in texas former solicitor general ted cruz has excellent opportunities to be elected on november 6th, becoming the first hispanic to represent hispanics in the united states senate from texas. in the united states house, there are currently 24 latinos serving the u.s. house of representatives. two are not running for r
, andy. and he came here from california. he is an author and an ex-police officer. he trains dogs. this is bruno, a 4-year-old german shepherd. hughes trained to -- cocaine, meth to ecstasy. don't worry, you are all safe. while andy is making his comments i'm going to make a few practical comments to you about training, about breeding and how police dogs are purchased and how little departments get dogs that don't work in big departments use them to do illegal searches all the time. andy go ahead. >> i haven't been on the hall listening to all the folks talk about the docs. knowing i'm coming from the opposing side in a sense, you know they properly selected dog who was well trained is very reliable. i know there are a few cases out there just there are doctors that are no good and politicians that are good and maybe even some attorneys aren't good. they make mistakes or do things in the wrong order. in other words use a dog. a dog is really only supposed to be used to find the odor and leave the further evidence that would later on lead us to the vehicle. i have been a police off
campaign financing. >> so you're looking at california right now, and that massive increase in the cost of gasoline, when matt said, when consumers are paying for gasoline they are not able to purchase their basic commodities every day. so what's happening? governor brown is proposing a relaxation of regulations that impact the energy industry. that is clearly a concession that regulation drives the cost of energy. we've got to have that same focus and discussion here in washington. because what's happening in california can happen all across this country. >> hawaii, i heard -- >> when we do the big deal everybody thinks we have to do entitlements and defends on one side and taxes on the other. if you have a school pashtuns do with two legs he usually falls over. if we look at what the canadians did with their cash cow, we have more cash cow in energy than any of them. and we can do spending. we can do taxes, and we can to energy which is our cash cow if we go to and you can make a real deal. and i -- >> tom, you think this can happen if the make of government on november 7 is the same
and a talk about california being an example of a future that none of us want for our country. they said we don't have to look at greece or spain, just look at california. so we know what lies ahead if we don't get our act together. and i think, i think there's a constituency and i think it's all about leadership. as a former governor, i make him it was just not the case that i could go to the legislation to i consider my ideas, legislators, i hope you can give me something that will work. leadership starts at the top in an organization. the chief executive has to lead. >> we've seen and we saw in this conversation here, an unwillingness for both sides to move off of their points. we've seen over the past few weeks a lot of talk about going over the cliff. we saw schumer last week start to throw some cold water on avenues that have been viewed as, or potential around these issues. are you reading this as an inability to advance the ball? >> i certainly hope senator schumer was a one off for purposes of the fall campaign, and that that is an action way things because that was very unhelpful
california showed this phenomenal mathematical principle of declining with cumulative output over time. i think it is something more like that the critics of google are getting at when we talk about scale. it's not really economies of scale. it's a learning by doing phenomenon. so is there a problem, is there an inability of competitors of google. >> we're going to leave the american enterprise institute now for a brief pro-forma session of the u.s. senate. we will return to live coverage of this conversation on google's antitrust allegations in just a moment. now live to the senate floor e. the clerk: washington, d.c, october 5, 2012. to the senate: under the provisions of rule 1, paragraph 3, of the standing rules of the senate, i hereby appoint the honeshonorable john d. rockefelr iv, a senator from the state of west virginia, to perform the duties of the chair. signed: daniel k. inouye, president pro tempore. the presiding officer: under the previous order, the senate stands adjourned until 11:00 stands adjourned until 11:00 >> while situated today, people said the same sort of thing
night i for once, agree with mitt. hilda in lakeside california, a supporter of president obama. hi. >> caller: how are you this morning? thanks for taking my call. >> host: what did you think of the debate last night? >> caller: i agree with the person who said mitt romney didn't -- president obama. he put his arms around him. hugged hill and agreeded with all his foreign policy after for two years trashing everything obama had been doing in foreign policy. last night he said i agree with everything you're doing, president obama. you're awesome. so i agree with that. for those romney undecided people, only question i have them ask themselves is, why is mitt 30 points behind in his home state of massachusetts? and why the -- manufacturing company in freeport, illinois, so angry with mitt romney, the job creator? romney go to free point and help those people save their 170 jobs if he is such a believer in wanting to save jobs that are being shipped to china. he got a real life scenario right there. he could show the whole world that he really wants to save american jobs and help thos
. first-come apparent trigger. it's drawn attention. after the current resolution success in california. curious whether the two candidates in the front. >> so, governor romney's supports anything that empowers parents to exercise choice over their child's education and that includes parent triggered. it's a new idea that is being tested by the states the interested in experimenting with this idea. and certainly not something that you would see the federal government imposing as a nationwide policy or anything along those lines. >> i think that the president has been very focused in leading as a secretary on turning out the schools and in powering the parents. a variety of ways to do that. the parent trigger is being tried out in several ways. i haven't heard the president talked about that specific issue but we have a framework of the schools and engaging parents. various things are going to be tried, and if that doesn't mean it may become a federal issue. >> one last question. jon. in the three nonprofits and districts were permitted to compete for profits couldn't be primary particip
of california and equal protection it loving versus virginia and the sense that can the state to ban this? the doma case, the case is a lot easier legally and politically for the supreme court because, so they are states. i actually think they will take the doma case and they will declare it unconstitutional because it government why the government needs couples who happen to be of if the case goes up in its current form and there are ways that they if it goes up must the 44 states that don't. imagine telling mississippi and alabama and texas oh by the way you have to start performing same-sex marriages or you are in violation of justices are very aware of the think they will deny certiorari on the proposition 8 case which means same-sex marriage approximately 20 to 25% of the people live in states that have i don't think believes that number is going to start to i am not particularly of the debate here governor it's not going to happen anytime it's will be pleased state-by-state level and. >> that please join me in >> good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. i'm jim milngto it's about 40 mi
obama campaign and former deputy assistant to president obama spoke at california state university northridge he discussed how those lessons can be applied to this year's campaign. he also analyzed leadership, communication and the use of words in the presidential campaigns. this is about an hour and 15 minutes. >> i spent a lot of time in this area. this is a holiday place for me. my relatives actually lived in the hills, so every holiday for about two decades this is actually where we came every christmas and thanksgiving and so forth. so it is a great honor to be back here. tell you a little bit about myself. when i was in third grade we moved to california anyone know where the park is? lived in this small town in california, and i had about the same ten kids i went to school with every year until late trade and then when i got into high school we were in love valley and picked up a lot more classmates. so i grew up small i guess you'd say. we did a lot of direct activities, camping, fishing, hunting, played ball. and so, you know, he eventually i ended up at santa barbara and

[inaudible] he's a good men. he'd created business. obama has not held a job outside of political. tread to your in san pedro, california, so that's orange county, los angeles county? >> caller: los angeles county. >> host: how is the county going to go? >> caller: well you know, it's split i think, you know? but -- [inaudible] >> host: just. >> caller: i sob romney-ryan signed up there today when i was walking. it's a uniontown. it's mostly all democrats are. but there's a lot of people -- [inaudible] but like i said, there's people there talking against romney, he's the only one that is held business, i mean, you know, what has obama done? >> host: that is alice.

california show this phenomenal, mathematical key militant outfit over time. this is something that the critics of google are getting out when they talk about scale. it is not really economies of scale but a learning by doing phenomenon. so, is there a problem, is there an inability to engage in this kind of learning by doing? is there some inability to use the benefits that are derived from learning by doing this on a more robust kind of search engine? i think what you have to conclude is that it's not a very persuasive argument. because google itself was not the first search engine. it displays yahoo!. it was not the first to the market. so what we see is a second entrance can require gmail of scale tesla not to displace the larger search engine. and although google may seem very big and -- very big and well situated today, people have said the same sort of thing about microsoft a decade ago and it that has had its own share of competitive rivalry in the meantime. so i have no reason to think that google won't continue to face lots of competitive rivalry from search technolog
. most asians, the voters classified in california and hawaii, which not exactly target states. agents in northern virginia, i think that's the biggest asian group in a target state. the republicans have been working pretty hard in fairfax county. and if you listen to romney's answer in immigration in the second debate, he was trying to be more palatable to latino voters who see an anti-illegal immigrant stance as being one hostile to hispanic people. but it was mostly, it was aimed precisely at asians. .. this population is coming very, very fast. it's something republicans have to deal with going forward, but they still at least have a translation problem. the african-american population is a very slow growing population and that will affect elections going forward. henry? >> first the long white vote is crucial. he's going to lose the white vote. the question is the size of the margin. every mom white voter particularly hispanic or african-american is 80 to 85% likely to be a vote for him. that said, and ohio this is literally a black-and-white state there is no appreciable non-hisp
otherwise any standards even the gold standard, it doesn't matter. in california they do an inspection once every five years and in montana it is every five years and in pennsylvania is one every six. michigan it's once every ten. the law calls for effective enforcement but if anyone thinks once every five years or six or ten is effective, i think i expect a little more than that. so, we are looking basically to raise the bar, and we have got a lot more time working with parents. parents make assumptions. we've done polling and the assumed the license means something. they assume there are some basic protections for children. they assume that somebody is looking out to see where, you know, how was the program during? but what we know from the gatt between the logical assumption of parents and what is actually happening in the state policies is that its huge. the parents that we have been working with throughout the country had stories to tell, and i'm hoping that it would make the candidates think twice. what are we doing? i was in alaska two weeks ago. a 19 month-old toddler died on the pl
by a bunch of identity yachtic people in california, nobody knew about it. it went on the internet, and somebody in the islamist translated it and a plethora of out of control television stations in egypt. and want somebody to explain it and comment on it and engaged in whipping up frenzy against the christians and egypt and all of that. they grabbed it in their own competition with the islamist which is in egypt. the country who happens to be the muslim brotherhood use it also in a competition with the -- so here you have the two made islamist group compete in using this issue as a pretext, as an excuse in their outgoing political sites. it's a political issue. some day issue -- [inaudible] it was indeed very troubled. when after it organize hezbollah and guys in big campaigns -- [inaudible] very defensive position in today. he needed that pretext. sensing in pakistan, the same thing in afghanistan, you know, talk about the stupid against the prophet mohammad or two years ago jones and whatever in florida who decided to burn korans. the same thing about political power. and every
response to this concept of free. but agencies like the epa, it was the case in california, the authorities versus epa where it involved the rule in the clean air act, very complex piece of litigation, responsibility and the state's to adopt plans and the country and implementing a plan to comply with visibility and a static act and the law was brought in california and the consent entered into that decree the epa band assault certain requirements and obligations that didn't exist across the country including oklahoma. my friend is the attorney general in north dakota and excuse me before that was actually filed tried to develop himself in that process as was denied by the justice and the epa if there was a concern they have across the country in fact recently 13 states join together but democrats, republicans sent a letter to the epa and in that request information as being sought with respect to communication etc with respect to our whole laundry list of environmental groups and in certain cases decrease. there are 40 plus cases in the last three years where the epa is engaged in that kin
, a republican in california, who has been a victim of some of these super pac ads, and he and others considering legislation to tighten up the rules. johnny in san diego, california, you're supporting gary johnson. why is that? >> caller: well, why i'm a late decider, i was torn between governor johnson and governor romney. but i actually think he won the third party debate, that i was very happy you guys were focusing on. the whole media treats the presidential race like a football game, like it's two teams just trying to battle each other out. but the reality is i'm not going to let my cynicallism keep me out of voting, especially being in california, we're not a swing state out here. but, you know, i think -- i also, you know, i think the ross perot 15% rule is really unfair, which, of course, being a national debate you have to be poll anything that 15%. but how can you poll at 15% like ross perot did if you're not allowed to debate anyway? >> host: okay. >> caller: so i feel that, so that's why i'm not going to waste my vote on any of the two major party candidates. so that's why i am a lat
. in california for example a full 20% of the snap households also received tanf. that means the snap has been eliminated in california, 28% of recipients would still be subject to the $2,000 tanf test. overall this speaks of the problem how the income rules and programs try to get families in similar means can both perpetuate confusion about eligibility and limit the ability of the reform that occurs in one program and isolation to reduce the red tape and burdensome paperwork requirements. this also assesses their needs to be a regulation that a family may qualify for and be subject to different rules that for example snap and medicaid and well-intentioned ruled that simplifies the eligibility in one program to diminish practical cats and the similar requirements remain and others. on a related note some describe issues with implementation of the acid test reforms that mitigated their effectiveness. for example in louisiana we heard about the case workers asking applicants even if they shouldn't be subject to the test it in part because there was an adequate training on some of the workers fo
routed somewhere completely differently. an outsource boiler room in indiana or pakistan or california or florida. might go back to the lead generator. might go to the company that is actually trying to pitch the scam to you. frequently you'll speak to a qualifier then, and they'll ask a few questions, like whether you have at least $10,000 in credit card debt and at least two credit cards. and they might just hang up on you. they're calling with a spoof caller id number and the use a name like card services or account-and-when you talk to them you don't know anything about them. you think you know their phone number. you think you know the name. you think you know where they are because they might call from an area code that is near you. in fact they could be in panama, in indiana in california, they can be anywhere. some cases if the lead generator -- they will just hang up on you then. they have your number and your name and they know you're someone that is interested in reducing your credit card debt and they're going to sell that information to one, ten, 20, 30 different scammers

in los angeles would kill me if i don't say you were representing the aerospace center of california during nine terms in the congress and that you served on all the major security committees, six years on the armed services, eight years on the intelligence and four on homeland security. and congresswoman harman has made, has covered almost the whole world including ten days ago is she returned from kosovo. >> right. >> and i will introduce afterward aaron. >> okay, all right. thank you, haleh. and haleh is an example of probably our proudest example of the role women play at the wilson center. the middle east project is one of our most important projects, and this gift from chairman joe gildenhorn and his wife, alma, who are right there, makes much of our work possible. and it's not just the gift of dollars, it's the gift of their time and energy and insights. i am thrilled today, very briefly, to introduce a friend of mind, e rage halevy. -- e rage halevy. as you heard, i spent many long years in congress, in fact, i call myself an escapee from the united states congress. i'm now a
to the state response, but agencies like the epa, there was the case in california university epa where it involved the clean air act, very complex piece of litigation and responsibility in the states to adopt plans all over the country and implementing a plan to comply with visibility and requirements and a lawsuit was brought in california and the same was entered into but in that dissent decree the epa a bound itself to certain requirements and obligations that did not exist and do not exist under the clean water act affecting other states across the country and put in oklahoma. my friend is the attorney general in north dakota. before that is sent -- before that was actually filed and tried to invest in that process and was denied by both the justice and the epa. it's a concern that the attorney general's have across the country and recently 13 states tried to get a democrat and republican and sent a letter to the epa and information is being sought with respect to collaboration and coordination and communication etc. with respect to a whole laundry list of environmental groups and
california on the republican line. good morning, tyson. >> caller: happy birthday morning to me, thank you. >> host: are you watching the presidential d date? >> guest: i am 100% sure i will be watching. it's basically the two candidates's bdy to court in so to speak face-to-face and true in politics. no teleprompter. we are going to try to avoid a wires down the back of the sport coats and all that jazz. let's get true face-to-face questions and answers and a good clean honest debate. thanks, libby. >> host: before you go what do you hope to learn, are you watching your for your candidate or to learn something? what's the point? >> caller: i'm always watching to learn and listen to learn, but honestly, i'd have to see the two candidates face-to-face without a building everything they have to say politically speaking. we see the speeches and commercials. this is a true american presidential debate which i cherish and i hope to learn a lot. >> host: happy birthday, tyson. let's go to dale atlanta georgia democrats line. >> caller: how are you doing? >> host: are you going to watch tomorrow
of education and because of the number of textbooks with the loan of california, they can drive education for the rest of the nation. so that is why they saw the uproar this year and they literally change the textbooks in texas to take out a lot of stuff dealing with slavery and dealing with other issues like i got what is going on? because they understood how you take the public policy and how you can affect the mind of the next generation and put them together and they caught the progress of liberals and democrats totally off guard. but that actually was the beginning of the republican takeover in texas, the actual state board of education. so i think a lot of people think -- >> no, you get low hanging fruit and you can have an impact on the race to the people and the last point if you study the most local school board races virtually nobody votes in those races. there are people literally in the major cities who are winning the school board races with 300 or 400 votes. and so, understand school members get five people you do not have a majority coming and for the business folks up here
to california so that connection to place is really deep and a lot of native people. on the same reservation, across the lake at the village of red lake there is a catholic mission in the church. the population is predominantly catholic those are two villages on the reservation. so you can have a real diversity of the traditions and experience and regardless of the religious choice people do have access and are able to participate in different customs be weeks and practices and the most beautiful land in power in parts of what it means to be native for those who are incarcerated, those for whatever reason are having trouble accessing their home communities and leaders in things like that it's a challenge and issue for the eletes customs and practices and access to them to present opportunities sometimes it is hard to find practitioners who are able and willing to go to those places. there are some profound challenges there and i think its important work and raises fundamental issues even about the prison systems in general if you want that to be a lot of rehabilitation providing better acces

is one-fifth of our gdp. the largest not-for-profit health care organization in california. we have known for a long time that we have to have affordable quality health care. when joseph asked about the responsibilities, it is all of our responsibilities. under the affordable care act and think it was the first beginning of what we need to do in order to reform health care system to make it affordable for all of us. i like the ability to put my two boys back on to the health care system that we have to wait until they're 26. i also like the ability to make sure that no one is a slave to their job when it comes to pre-existing conditions. you know, health care is a big deal, but whether -- is governor romney becomes president we will have romney care or obamacare because we need to solve this problem, and we need to solve it immediately. it is a collaborative effort between private, public, state, local government, and the federal government. >>moderater: senator hatch de. hatch: anything but affordable. 85 percent of the american people have insurance, and we are getting along quite fine.
to california and a lot of places in between because of my record and the results that i achieved for the people in the state either leading the fight to cut the payroll tax for millions of americans and in pennsylvania so they could of dollars in the pocket to be doubled to invest in the economy, trade adjustment when the workers lose their jobs because of the unfair foreign competition and i let the fight pass that legislation given the training they need to get back on their feet. the so-called dredging plastic the deepening of the channels on was the key player in getting the most recent funding for that so getting results is key for the economy, and i have the honor to have served the people of pennsylvania to have earned their trust and i would ask again to have the opportunity to earn the trust and i would ask for your vote on november 6. thank you. >> moderator: speed become a gentleman that concludes the debate and we want to think the candidates for taking part in this important program. we also want to think of course monica malpass and vernon odom from action news and thank you for w
a lot of growth and jobs, and i give you just one example. in california, you can save more than $5 billion in tort costs and create almost 300,000 jobs simply by improving the legal environment. that makes sense to me, and we can go through all of those numbers, but i would rather put my thoughts to the issue, then, of small businesses. we'll never have a sustainable recovery if we don't get a recovery in small business. look, you can go to a big pharmaceutical company or a big oil company, and you can have a great big lawsuit, and they're going to survive while it's going to be difficult and expensive, but you go after a small company, and they don't survive. it is fundamentally important to us not only to see the -- what happens in a state as to what's going to happen to big companies, what is going to happen to big job growth, but to understand that small guys work in an interdependent way with large companies, but many, many jobs come from there, and we have to always keep in our mind what's happening with small companies. now, one of my new things, mayor, you got to get on to
in california would take the saudi arabia delegations to its construction sites and its infrastructure achievements. and over the course of the time of doing this together, saudi arabia and fast, might you come to our country and show us how to build these kinds of things because we need them and we need a partnership with something like you. something as basic as that, informal, person-to-person much of this relationship. and routine regiment and from that to trust into confidence into mutuality benefit. the opportunities are the same pharmaceutical companies and law firms. one of those pharmaceutical firms told me they would be willing to take 40 saudi arabia and. if years, 10 a year to give internship training thin headquarters. the theory was that out of the four d., within the next decade, perhaps one, perhaps two, perhaps three. but even if only one would have signature authority for procurement or design or engineering for construction of a venture that stems from that initial internship. the same thing for law firms. and specificity of attention to detail this can be built i co
. in effect, what's happened is that in recent months, especially in massachusetts but also in california, but in massachusetts, we had the massachusetts supreme court direct the state of -- the legislature in massachusetts to modify their constitution to allow gay marriage. and the fact is that the president felt that it was important to make it clear that -- that that's the wrong way to go as far as he's krneds. he sets policy for this administration, and i support the president. >> senator edwards, 90 seconds. >> yes. let me say first on an issue that the vice president said in his last answer before we got to this question, talking about tax policy. the country needs to know that under what they have put in place and want to put in place, millionaires sitting by their swimming pool, make their money from dividends, pay a lower tax rate than the men and women who are receiving paychecks for serving on the ground in iraq. now, they may think that's right. john kerry and i do not. we don't just value wealth, which they do. we value work in this country. and it is a fundamental value diff
simply. rich, white, man, new york, texas, california, kansas and las vegas. >> loud. >> that's where the money's coming from. >> so actually, you know, in a dozen tell us about the tax exempt groups, and there is some evidence that is a main conduit for corporate money. the super pacs have made a country whose electorate more and more diverse, had more money in politics that we know about come from a smaller number of very wealthy, mostly male, almost entirely white people in the coasters are traditional states for fundraising happens. so it's not a huge surprise. but basically i see satcom is where where the billionaires are. it is kind of astounding when you start to break down just how few people are financing in both parties all of these outfits. and again, on the democratic side, liberal wall street people, movie stars, travelers who made tens of millions of dollars in tobacco settlements. that's basically where the money comes from on the democratic side and the nascent democratic super pac conglomerate, which is still getting a two speed relative to the republicans. >> i just
. started a charter school in oakland, california, and have been with a private school for, um, 35 years and just retired. and there is a similarity in all of those, and you've talked about this, but to get down to what really happens we need supportive teachers who know what the hell they're doing. and they need to be great teachers. they need to understand not only kids, but they need to understand parents. and principals need to understand teachers, and they need to understand and help parents. when i taught in the cleveland inner city schools, we did all our parent/teacher conferences at the parents' homes. and can that was in a tough area in cleveland. we had after school programs for parents to learn sewing, cooking, finances and is so forth. and teachers, i don't know how to -- as being a principal, we need to get the best teachers if possible. and if they're not good, to get rid of them. and is that's hard to do. it's easier to do in nonpublic schools than public schools. but i don't know what else to say. we need to keep getting those great teachers and getting principals who un
in california to see growing sales as customers flocking to the stores instead of buying on-line. well, don't hold your breath. it's not likely to be the case. people buy online for convenience, choice and lower prices without even getting into the sales tax. >>> last week democrat krysten sinema and republican fervor parker and paul less gammill took part in a debate in the district of arizona. that is the seat that was added to the state after the 2010 census. this debate courtesy of kaet tv in phoenix and the runs half an hour. good evening and welcome to this special vote 2012 edition of arizona horizon. i am ted simonson and tonight is a debate of candidates running to represent arizonas ninth congressional district in the u.s. house of representatives. as with all the horizon debate this is a formal exercise it is an open exchange of ideas, an opportunity for give-and-take between the candidates for the state's most important offices. as such interjections at times even interruptions are allowed provide that those get a chance to respond and we will do our best to see that that happen
know, the polls in california close in about 340 hours. so we have a nation very focused on outcomes, and who's going to win about discourse going to be in three counties in ohio. but tonight we're going to try spinnakers occur for a little bit because one of the guilty pleasures that we in the museum shared that draws us together is our avid embrace the good process. jim briefly noted the incredible will to museum plays and focusing our entries on protecting first amendment freedoms. at the bpc, we connect policy projects and engage national leaders in efforts to solve the problems. in our process for jonas to the czech politics at the door. but instead reach out to proud democrats and republicans, people care deeply about parties, who fight to win elections and has still come together everyday to share solutions. press and press events in presidential elections are always about collisions. it takes a real talented member of the upcoming real talented journalist to draw out the constructive collisions of real ideas. today we are going to speak with three of our nation's most talente

[applause] >> i am gary hart of colorado. [applause] nations even great nations sometimes require a voice of conscious. george mcgovern was the voice of conscious for our nation in our time. the voice of conscious began as far back as intent -- ancient israel with its profits calling the people of israel back to their purpose and back to their cause. in america george mcgovern stood in the tradition of henry david thoreau of william jennings bryan, and more recently, of robert kennedy and of martin luther king. when the wounded veteran in vietnam needed a voice, george mcgovern was there. when a hungry child in america's poverty needed a voice, he was there. when women minorities, and young people sought to break down the barriers of a closed political system his voice was there. when sinister forces corrupt
the 2004 presidential contest. both cheney visited new jersey, george w. bush visited california into 2000, the waning days before 2000 trying to put to very democratic states somewhere and play. so this is some kind of combination between a head fake torch try to get the obama campaign to spend money somewhere where they wouldn't otherwise, or it's sort of a real move towards expanding the map. the interesting thing about this year by the way is that this is the first time since 2004 that we've had a normal election. remember, 2006 was a democratic way. 2008 was a democratic way. 2010 was republican way so we don't really know what a norman electorate looks like. we don't know sort of the racial makeup or the age make a. this is why you're seeing a lot of balls all over the place. and both parties are using polling models that are dramatically different from each other. .. criticizing president obama. >> we reported on this last week we got a little hint these outside groups were going in. it's not just americans for prosperity is also the pro romney super pac. the campaign might be going
across country, we were headed to california. we stopped in nevada for the day, we never left. my dad was a waiter. on a waiter's salary, he put a roof over our held, food on the table, clothes on our back and two daughters through college. not so bad on a waiter's salary. when i -- i'm the first person in my family to go to college, and i, um, worked my way through college as a waitress and a key know runner -- keno runner, a cocktail waitress and a shoe shine girl. i think it's my job to make sure that people who come after me have the same opportunities that my family had -- >> moderator: thank you. and senator heller? heller: mitch, thank you and thanks to the panelists, and also thank you to my opponent for also being here tonight. thank you so much. i grew up, i grew up here in nevada with five brothers and sisters. people know -- most people know my family by now. my father was an auto mechanic, and my mother was a school cook. my father created his own business. hard work. government didn't help. but he had certain principles that he lived by, important principles. specificall

in 1923, when he died in california of a heart attack, they couldn't even find calvin coolidge. of course, the punchline here is that it's a shame they ever do. the vice president would stay home. they didn't give and go to washington, d.c. in most cases. now they live in the naval observatory. but the first one to do so was walter mondale. it wasn't until the '70s the vice president even stayed in the city. saw this on calvin coolidge in vermont, population of about 33 ugly. there were no major airways in, railways and, roads and. they finally found coach and there was no justice of the peace around. his father was basically a notary and he took the oath with his father on the family bible in their living room. solvable of the vice president has changed considerably. and i think that both, i would give credit both to run and obama for picking a vice presidential nominee that not all it can help them get elected, but could help them govern pics i think these are both to a degree responsible selections in that respect. and i think no matter who wins this we are going to see either brian or
